Every right comes with a price. The price of free speech is having to put up with people saying things you find offensive. The price of trial by jury is jury duty. The price of the right to bear arms is the risk of being shot.

In the case of free speech and trial by jury, I'd say the right is worth the price. In the case of the right to bear arms, it isn't. I dream of the day when the Second Amendment is repealed.

Don't worry about Cersei, you'll see plenty of her later in the season. House Lannister is in for Interesting Times!

Jaime's hair is so horrible. That pisses me off because he's the sexiest guy on the show now that Robb Stark is dead and they're ruining him.

Mr. Dollard had best hope no one takes his words to heart and kills someone. If they do, he might be charged with incitement.

More government is less liberty only for rich people who want the "liberty" to do as they like with those weaker than themselves. For those of us who want to be protected from rich bastards like Charles Koch, more government means more liberty.

Being offended every now and then is the unavoidable price that we all must pay for the right to free speech. People who can't stand being offended need to either grow the fuck up, move to a foreign country, or at least acknowledge that they are opposed to free speech.

You don't boost your birthrate by getting people to have sex, you boost your birthrate by making parenthood economically feasible. Denmark would be much better served by spending this money on subsidized daycare, expanded maternity leave, or better education.

@23 If he burned a cross on someone's lawn I'd have a problem with it, because that's intimidation. But within the context of a meeting where no one is getting hurt or intimidated? That's just free speech. If you want to live in a society that allows freedom of speech, you have to reconcile yourself to being offended from time to time. Intimidation and harassment are wrong, merely expressing an opinion is not. Materially punishing someone just for expressing an opinion violates the right to free speech.
